PELICAN BEACH | FRIIS BAY
Awaken at Pelican Beach to amazing sunrises on this peaceful Coral Bay side of St. John USVI. Pelican Beach, one of the few St. John vacation rentals available directly on the beach, features fabulous outside living spaces with breathtaking views, cool evening breezes and almost daily visits from soaring, diving pelicans. At this unique, waterfront St. John accommodation, you will be lulled into peaceful bliss by the sound of the surf, both day and night.
Spend a lazy afternoon under the Seagrape tree canopy on our deck directly on a beautiful coral beach. Gazing out on the clear blue and aqua tranquil waters, don't be surprised to actually see a fish swimming by or to be dazzled by the air acrobatics of a leaping eagle ray. The semi private beach is available within footsteps from the grounds with some of the best snorkeling on the island because it is seldom disturbed. You never know what to expect from the amazing sea life.
Relax in our round gazebo, with its comfortable large furniture, and absorb the panoramic views from Tortola (BVI), East End (St. John), Flannigan Island (US) and Norman Island (BVI). Sun bathe during the day or dine in the evening shade on our large deck, just above the Seagrape trees.
Pelican Beach is a large waterfront home with a separate vacation rental unit. Managers are on premises in the upstairs section of the home. They can arrange boating, kayaking, or snorkel excursions for you if you wish.
The indoor living space provides two bedrooms with comfortable queen beds, fully equipped kitchen with full size appliances and a ceramic tiled bath with laundry facilities. The two bedrooms have air conditioners. The owner's sister is an artist, so unique touches can be found throughout. The furnishing and artwork reflect the owner's significant travels throughout the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
Wind down after a day of snorkeling and swimming in the screened in living room with amazing views and evening breezes. To finish off that busy day of vacationing, relax in your air-conditioned bedroom to watch a movie or favorite TV show. Each bedroom has its own cable TV with over 100 channels.
Pelican Beach strives to be environmentally friendly with the addition of our solar panels. We have developed extensive organic gardens, recycle as much as possible and created composting areas.

The landscaped grounds include a variety of palm trees, flowering plants to attract humming birds and many species of cactus and succulents.
